Seattle Grace Hospital is going to be minus one doctor come next year, as a major star on "Grey’s Anatomy" told Entertainment Weekly that she is done as of now.
Well, actually, she was done as of January.
Katherine Heigl’s character Izzie Stevens was last seen on "Anatomy" on Jan. 21, and it marks the the character and Heigl’s exit from ABC’s hit medical drama.
The actress told columnist Michael Ausiello that she will not be appearing in the final five shows of this season and her character, Izzie, will not be on the show next year.
Heigl told Ausiello, “We just finalized our agreement. Everyone had been working really hard to find an amicable and gracious way of letting go and moving on. It’s sad but it’s what I wanted.”
Heigl says the main reason for her departure was her family, and not her film career.
